NETRIGHT HOSTS WOMINs 2ND ANNUAL FEMINIST SCHOOL IN ACCRA GHANA

The Network for Women's Rights is hosting WOMIN’s 2nd Annual Feminist Movement Building School in Accra, Ghana from 7th to 14th June 2017. The school aims at making visible the exploitation of women and nature. This will be done by looking at the way economies and political systems (like governments, the courts, political party based democracy etc.) are set up and run to ensure that corporations and the rich outside and inside countries benefit from natural resources like land, forests, minerals and water. The school will also bring a perspective that looks at how families, communities and economies are structured to undermine, marginalise and exploit women.

The School is designed with the following six commitments in mind:

1. Together, starting with the knowledge and experiences of participants, the participants will build understanding in a space of safety and care.

2. Show how violence and increased insecurity is linked to the extractives industry.

3. Develop an analysis of how capitalism and patriarchy destroy nature and woman.

4. Make the connections between how society sees women and nature.

5. Making space for alternatives to come to the fore and gaining confidence to live a good life differently.

6. Conscious Wellness: a bodied (emotional, physical and intellectual) alternative to destruction.

The feminist movement building school is being held at the Crystal Palm Hotels, Accra-Ghana
